Brayde Adam, daughter of Scott and Tammy Adam from Plattsburg, Mo is the exhibitor of the 2012 Grand Champion Pen of Rabbits at the Missouri State Fair.  Her rabbits weighed 4.43, 4.40, and 4.44 pounds. She is a member of the Plattsburg Hustlers 4-H Club.
The Reserve Grand Champion Pen of Rabbits honor went to Kelby Moore, son of Jeff and Dori Moore of Wellsville. His rabbits weighed 4.55, 4.55, and 4.39 pounds. He is a member of the Montgomery County Coon Creek Cronies 4-H Club.
On Aug. 18, Brayde’s and Kelby’s rabbits will be two of 12 lots offered in the Youth in Agriculture Sale of Champions. Proceeds from the annual sale benefit both the winning exhibitors and the Missouri State Fair Youth in Agriculture Scholarship Program.
Because of the generous support of Youth in Agriculture sponsors, the Missouri State Fair is able to award scholarships to Missouri youth pursuing a degree in an agriculture-related field. Last year, twenty four $1,000 scholarships and one supreme $2,500 scholarship were awarded to youth across the state.
